    Mark 5:14; Job 10:1-3


    Mark 5:14

    KJV 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.


    Mark 5:14 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    14 The men taking care of the pigs ran to the town and the farms to spread the news. Then the people came out to see what had happened.

    These are my thoughts.

    We are to spread the good news about Jesus. 

    Job 10:1-3

    KJV 1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. 2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me. 3 Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

    Job 10:1-3 Good News Translation (GNT)

    10 I am tired of living.

        Listen to my bitter complaint.

    2 Don't condemn me, God.

        Tell me! What is the charge against me?

    3 Is it right for you to be so cruel?

        To despise what you yourself have made?

        And then to smile on the schemes of wicked people?

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    1 Job wanted to die often during the toughest struggles this is the thought people gain because they feel they aren’t able to make it thru it. Job here is speaking to God instead of taking his life into his own hands he goes to the Lord who truly holds his life.

    2 Job felt as if God was condemning him due to what he was going thru often times during struggles we may think why the Lord is allowing us to go thru this. Job knew that he wasn’t perfect but also knew that he made penitence thru sacrifice. 

    3 God is just never cruel, this life isn’t easy and throws things are way that make it seem that God isn’t loving, this is a lie satan wants us to believe the truth is God allows us to God thru things often times because He wants to draw closer to us because of His love. God is never happy with the wicked satan is prince of the world and can reward them to prevent them from coming to the Lord, remember what Jesus said about a rich man so often times those who are well often and living for sin may never come to the Lord it is sad but we are to use our struggles to find that deep closeness to the Lord.

    Mark 5:13; Job 9:33-35


    Mark 5:13

    KJV 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.


    Mark 5:13 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    13 Jesus let them go, and they went out of the man and into the pigs. The whole herd of about two thousand pigs rushed down the steep bank into the lake and drowned.

    These are my thoughts.

    Thru Jesus demons run away but demons lead us to destruction. 

    Job 9:33-35

    KJV 33 Neither is there any days man betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both. 34 Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me: 35 Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.


    Job 9:33-35 Good News Translation (GNT)


    33 But there is no one to step between us—
     no one to judge both God and me.
    34 Stop punishing me, God!
    Keep your terrors away!
    35 I am not afraid. I am going to talk
     because I know my own heart.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    33 Jesus can now step between us and the Father but Job had no knowledge of Jesus or grace that scripture tells us about today. There were many Job knew that could hold him accountable but there was no one who could hold God accountable because He is perfect.


    34 Job felt like God was punishing him to be thru a trial feels like to us at times a punishment but it is what we need at times for growth and because God is wanting us to grow it is not meant to be a punishment. God already planned on blessing Job on the other side of this trial and sometimes knowing that blessing from God is there on the other side helps carry us thru the trial.


    35 Job knew that while he was not perfect that he was not as bad as they were saying and that each time he was sinful he seeked God’s forgiveness, we are to do the same seek God’s grace because we are not perfect.

    Jude 1:2; Titus 1:4


    Jude 1:2

    KJV 2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.


    Jude 2 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    I pray that God will greatly bless you with kindness, peace, and love!


    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts.

    We should be willing to pray this for each other as well, without Christ none of this is truly the way it is meant to be though. 

    Titus 1:4

    KJV 4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.


    Titus 1:4 Good News Translation (GNT)


    I write to Titus, my true son in the faith that we have in common.

    May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior give you grace and peace.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    Titus was someone Paul brought lead to the Faith and helped grow as a believer. Paul even though he helped him did not consider them anything but equals. Paul did not try to put himself over by putting Titus down which we often times try to do so that we look better, Paul was happy that Titus was his equal in the faith. We can only receive grace and that peace from Jesus thru these we have a worth for living without Him we just wander thru what we call life but thru Him we can truly live and that gives us that peace and it is found thru His grace.

    Mark 5:12; Job 9:31-32


    Mark 5:12

    KJV 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.


    Mark 5:12 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    12 So the evil spirits begged Jesus, “Send us into those pigs! Let us go into them.”


    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts.

    The demons beg to Jesus this does not mean they are saved, it takes us being willing to submit to Jesus to be saved.


    Job 9:31-32

    KJV 31 Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me. 32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.


    Job 9:31-32 Good News Translation (GNT)


    31 God throws me into a pit with filth,
     and even my clothes are ashamed of me.
    32 If God were human, I could answer him;
     we could go to court to decide our quarrel.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts, please share yours.


    31 Job knew that God had the power to heal and to allow him to be in his condition while God allowed Satan to attack Job this did not mean God attacked Job, what Satan meant for evil towards Job God meant it for good by showing Job His holiness and might and to draw Job even into a closer fellowship with Him.


    32 Job knew that he could not stand before God because of God being higher then him, God would lower Himself as a man so that thru Him, Jesus we could be able to have that fellowship with Job that Job here wanted. Job had no stance against God, Christ pleads our case before the Father so that we win on judgment day.

    Mark 5:11; Job 9:27-30


    Mark 5:11
    KJV 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

    Mark 5:11 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    11 Over on the hillside a large herd of pigs was feeding.

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

    These are my thoughts.
    Pigs were animals that were unclean, Jews were not even to come into contact with pigs. 

    Job 9:27-30

    KJV 27 If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself: 28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent. 29 If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain? 30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;


    Job 9:27-30 Good News Translation (GNT)


    27-28 If I smile and try to forget my pain,
     all my suffering comes back to haunt me;
     I know that God does hold me guilty.
    29 Since I am held guilty, why should I bother?
    30  No soap can wash away my sins.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts, please share yours.


    27 To mask pain with a smile did not take away Job’s pain, him smiling nd acting as if nothing was wrong did not bring him comfort. Sometimes we are to prone to make a situation look better but not actually fix the problem.


    28 Job knew he was not perfect but he also knew that he was not as bad as his friends were saying he was, people may try to make us seem like we are worse then we actually are.


    29 Job had a poor attitude, we as Christians are guilty of sin but Jesus died for that sin his attitude is the same as if I am going to sin then why should I try to overcome it, yes we will still sin but because we have Jesus we are to strive to be more and more like Him.


    30 Job knew that his sin was more then just making his body unclean. Job knew that his soul could not be made clean by bathing, it takes the blood of the Lamb.
